Moving into Kentucky
“We finally got started, and after quite an amount of marching reached the wharf and took passage on a large ferry-boat for the south side of the Ohio river. . . Landing on the south side, we found ourselves in the city of Louisville, Kentucky. Some flags were displayed as we passed, but as a general thing there was rather a cool reception shown us.
